Eastern korean coast

DSC02380

The peaceful eastern coast of South Korea, viewed from a traditional korean pagoda, on the top of a hill. The tourists are walking from the forest to the short beach, eaten by furious waves.

Yet, an old strong fence is still standing before the beach and seems protecting the peninsula from an unknown threat. We could guess that the north korean submarine captured years ago in this province made people suspecious, but it could be either the regular political fights between Korean and Japan about the Dokdo korean islands (which are more two small rocks lost between the two countries rather than proper islands) claimed by Japan (who calls them Takeshima islands). Today actually, this fence seems just symbolizing an old traditional fear of the penynsula from its dangerous neighboors.
